Did you know that two million Canadians can’t access a reliable fixed or mobile Internet connection? In rural, remote and northern communities, households cannot connect with the rest of the country and businesses face barriers to growth.
That’s why it is so important for municipal leaders to add their voices to our call for universal access to high-speed broadband and mobile Internet. FCM is here to help. We are calling for clear targets for speed, long-term, predictable funding, and affordable access for the hardest-to-serve populations.
Here’s what you can do:
- Download our one-page issue sheet and share it online.
- Visit your MP and discuss our campaign. Print and leave our issue sheet with them.
- Tweet @FCM_online and #cdnmuni and tell about your community’s need for #universalbroadband.
- Share our campaign on social media.
Reliable Internet for everyone. It’s time. See how #Budget2019 could make #universalbroadband a reality, in communities of all sizes. https://t.co/tiOYRuriim #cdnmuni #cdnpoli @BernJordanMP pic.twitter.com/Xtql5zNtyZ— FCM (@FCM_online) February 13, 2019
